More on the way

Life goes on. And it's another marvelous day of rain. No wind, just delightful rain, soaking the ground everywhere. And more forecast for tomorrow. And then it gets better… "The break still looks good Wednesday through Friday with more rain next weekend and still the potential for a sub-tropical tap into that system. Snow levels look to be much higher with that weekend storm then with this one."

 It's also a marvelous day as it's our 46th wedding anniversary. We were married in a small church in a small town. Manhattan Beach, at that time, didn't have a single celebrity residing within the city limits. Imagine! Almost all residents could be called middle class and lower as most of them worked at the aircraft factories like Hughes, North American and Douglas. It's a different world now and so are we. Viva La Difference!

On a different note; I was just reading the article, I Facebook, Therefore I Am by Cristina Fernandez-Pereda. Interesting, but I think she is missing part of the picture because she treats the subject as if it were simply a phenomena relating to those in their 20's and 30's. From personal experience, I see it creeping into the older mainstream as well. It has a lot of potential and it's not just social; though, for elders and their families, the social aspect could be the most attractive. (But it's not quite there yet…sigh.)

Of course, at the end of the article, there is the usual link to let you post the article on your own Facebook page. I will.
